Is Ethnicity a Barrier to Growth in Asia?

Is Ethnicity a Barrier to Growth in Asia? | DOORs to Leadership and Change | Scoop.it
As an international banker working in Hong Kong, Lim* is enlarging his firm's business and expanding its presence in mainland China.
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

The preferred and innate roles that people play are critical to success within organisations. An understanding of 'Role theory' can help any 'Team" irrespective of culture to build a more balanced team that focuses on the strengths each individual brings to the team. This is an issue globally and not peculiar to Malaysian Chinese. Interestingly 'Diversity' in all its guises is still a critical issue in so called 'advanced' western economies- Take the continued issue of Gender and Cultural participation in senior Leadership positions which are still the bastion of the cultural elites. There is a broader  Organisational Development issue that needs to be factored in that would steer strategies towards systemic interventions.

Leadership programs are formulaic. Leadership is a performance and a leader's character are important.

CM 049: Arun Sundararajan on the Sharing Economy

CM 049: Arun Sundararajan on the Sharing Economy | DOORs to Leadership and Change | Scoop.it
We all share, but today, millions get paid for it. Is this new trend just a fad or is it radical rethink for how we work? When we catch a ride with an Uber driver or contract with someone on Upwork…
Eugene Fernandez's insight:
Excellent discussion- Many of the structures established last century need to be and are being reframed for providing services, Uber and the taxi industry are used as a present example of this reframing. Governments need to partner with these platform providers to enable solutions that incorporate regulations/safety as part of the operating business model, but not in the heavy handed manner in the past.

How the Internet Is Loosening Our Grip on the Truth

How the Internet Is Loosening Our Grip on the Truth | DOORs to Leadership and Change | Scoop.it
A wider variety of news sources was supposed to be the bulwark of a rational age. Instead, we are roiled by biases, gorging on what confirms our ideas and shunning what does not.
Eugene Fernandez's insight:
An insightful piece about that much maligned word  'The Truth'. As a social species, the notion of truth has been massaged to fit the eye of the beholder since the dawn of time. 

The truth you see reveals itself through the bars of your cage, which act as filters allowing confirmatory messages that agreed with our worldview to arrive with least resistance. On the other hand messages that are contradictory or cause dissonance are met with reinforced extra thick bars that are hard to prise apart. 

Drawing on empirical research the author cites many examples where the internet through infinite choice is further distorting our collective grasp of 'The Truth'.

Dangerous idiots: how the liberal media elite failed working-class Americans

Dangerous idiots: how the liberal media elite failed working-class Americans | DOORs to Leadership and Change | Scoop.it
Trump supporters are not the caricatures journalists depict – and native Kansan Sarah Smarsh sets out to correct what newsrooms get wrong
Eugene Fernandez's insight:
A critical expose of the ideological and polarising potrayal of the American election and the role an elite influenced media plays in portraying sweeping stereotypes around race, privilege and class.

The author asks us to look a little deeper at the generic, broad brush individual archetypes offered up for our consumption. I would recommend you read the whole article to understand the bigger picture and arguments. 

Here are a few pertinent passages from the article: 
 
A journalism that embodies the plutocracy it’s supposed to critique has failed its watchdog duty and lost the respect of people who call bullshit when they see it. 

 Last year, talking with author Marilynne Robinson for the New York Review of Books, Obama lamented common misconceptions of small-town middle America, for which he has a sort of reverence. “There’s this huge gap between how folks go about their daily lives and how we talk about our common life and our political life,” he said, naming one cause as “the filters that stand between ordinary people” who are busy getting by and complicated policy debates. 

 Results of 87,000 interviews conducted by Gallup showed that those who liked Trump were under no more economic distress or immigration-related anxiety than those who opposed him. 

Earlier this year, primary exit polls revealed that Trump voters were, in fact, more affluent than most Americans, with a median household income of $72,000 – higher than that of Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders supporters. Forty-four percent of them had college degrees, well above the national average of 33% among whites or 29% overall. In January, political scientist Matthew MacWilliams reported findings that a penchant for authoritarianism – not income, education, gender, age or race –predicted Trump support. 

 Affluent analysts who oppose Trump, though, have a way of taking a systemic view when examining social woes but viewing their place on the political continuum as a triumph of individual character. Most of them presumably inherited their political bent, just like most of those in “red” America did. If you were handed liberalism, give yourself no pats on the back for your vote against Trump. The main reason that national media outlets have a blind spot in matters of class is the lack of socioeconomic diversity within their ranks. 

Few people born to deprivation end up working in newsrooms or publishing books. So few, in fact, that this former laborer has found cause to shift her entire writing career to talk specifically about class in a wealth-privileged industry, much as journalists of color find themselves talking about race in a whiteness-privileged one. 

 In a world in which the Bettys and Arnies of the world have little voice, those who enjoy a platform from which to speak might examine their hearts and minds before stepping onto the soap box. 

 If you would stereotype a group of people by presuming to guess their politics or deeming them inferior to yourself – say, the ones who worked third shift on a Boeing floor while others flew to Mexico during spring break; the ones who mopped a McDonald’s bathroom while others argued about the minimum wage on Twitter; the ones who cleaned out their lockers at a defunct Pabst factory while others drank craft beer at trendy bars; the ones who came back from the Middle East in caskets while others wrote op-eds about foreign policy – then consider that you might have more in common with Trump than you would like to admit.
